HI-CHEW, a global chewy candy company, has selected Beanstalk to extend its brand into worldwide food and beverage and lifestyle licensing.

Building off the success of marketing partnerships with Major League Baseball and the National Hockey League, plus previous brand collaborations with Menchie’s, Zola Bakes, Dana’s Bakery and The Doughnut Project, the HI-CHEW licensing program will allow consumers to enjoy the authentic Japanese confectionery brand. Beanstalk will leverage HI-CHEW’s flavors and colors to several licensing categories, including food and beverage, fashion and lifestyle, health and beauty, gift and novelty, social expression and collaborations.
